Northwestern commit Simba Short: linebacker and graffiti artist

When Simba Short committed to Northwestern last week, anyone vaguely familiar with Disney’s “The Lion King” was thrilled. How could they not be? There was brilliant photoshop work, Twitter-conveyed frustration and jokes. Lots of jokes. We changed our Facebook background photo! But what most people failed to notice about Short was his artistic talent. Short has a video series on Youtube offering a window into his passion for graffiti. The series is titled “Sim Art” and features Short pretending to be a lawyer, expressing faux-outrage at his mom, rapping and stream-of-consciousness rambling. You can subscribe to SIMARTTV here.
